Yes: While the feet are not one of the classic trigger points for fibromyalgia pain, it is not uncommon for patients with this condition to develop numbness/tingling in their arms, legs and/or feet. However, other conditions can cause this sensation, so see your clinician for a physical examination and possibly other tests to determine the cause and appropriate treatment.

What causes a sensation of tingling in the feet?

Many things: Including things that have nothing to do with the feet, like a pinched nerve in the lower back or leg. If both feet tingle, this may be a symptom of an underlying problem like diabetes, anemia or something else. I'd start with seeing your pmd who can recommend an appropriate specialist after an initial work-up. Feel better!
